I am extremely privileged to be the Marlborough Girls’ College Community Relations Prefect for 2017 and I’m looking forward to an exciting and busy year ahead!
My role as the Community Relations Prefect involves giving back to the community, supporting positive community initiatives, as well as encouraging the school to give back to the community in one of the events this year called the Whanau Group Challenge. This is a great way for students to take time out of their day to reflect on what could be done in the community to enhance the lives of others in the wider community. I encourage students this year to once again have creative ideas that will continue to be carried out in a successful manner to enhance the lives of the wider community. The 40 Hour Famine is one of the major events on my calendar this year which will involve supporting the students to appreciate the less fortunate by taking time out of their lives to enhance the lives of others.
My goal this year is to encourage all students at Marlborough Girls' College to become a role model in the community by being a positive citizen and promote the importance of giving back to the wider society. I believe as the Community Relations Prefect that giving back to the community is more rewarding than receiving, and I hope to promote this within the school to enhance school life as well as leading the ongoing enhancement of society.
